Developer finds ‘new hardware feature’ in the Wii U
Developer Two Tribes has said that they have discovered a hidden hardware feature of the Wii U.
Two Tribes was very happy to report that: “Today we discovered a new hardware feature of the Wii U that shaves off 100 megabytes of texture memory usage in Toki Tori 2!”
But what does this extra 100MB of texture memory allow them to do?
They explained this hidden feature’s benefits by saying: “It means we spend less time loading and have more memory available when the game is running.”
Good news to hear. It appears that the Wii U is all around a surprising console. Michael Ancel recently praised it as being very powerful, and other companies like Crytek have more than been pleased with it. Though of course the silly “it isn’t next-gen” debates will rage on until the Wii U’s generation ends in five or six years.
